A Creative Gala

Yesterday was such a fun and busy day as Kidcasso held its Golden Paintbrush Gala.
This was a true celebration of children's art, and Laura-Marie and her family and helpers set up beautiful
displays to showcase work children have done in classes over the past year. 

Laura-Marie Small, owner and educator

During the event, children, parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, 
as well as families and friends came to see the exhibits and enjoy the artwork. 



There were a few tables of adult artists, and both children, as well as adults, stopped to look.


 This was my display 


I had finished and framed a few more pieces during the week,

                                       

including this heavily beaded flower that had been left unfinished for a long time!


This abstract sold! I was happy about that.


It was terrific being part of this wonderful event and it was a very nice day!

Today I took it easy and cleaned up after all my framing and preparations.
Unfortunately, I didn't get any painting done, but I'm planning to get back into that tomorrow.

Hope you've had a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

I believe your work and your participation did the painting for the weekend... painting smiles on the faces of children and parents alike as they all experienced the joy of artistic expression. Kudos, job well done. Bask in the afterglow for a while.

Glad that you had such a fun (and successful!) day. What a wonderful facility and way to boost children's art making interest/potential.
